Re: Why the linux version is not on Steam?

Yet again, we Linux users may feel left out... that said of course I have voted to greenlight book 3 I am a Linux user too. I use Linux exclusively at home, and 3 out of 6 computer in the studio are now Linux. I hope to fully switch over to Linux after Book III for all our production, leaving only ...

Re: Why the linux version is not on Steam?

From my understanding, that's a better question to ask Steam. BW has given them the files as far as I know. Sorry- that's not entirely true. We were working on some Steam+Linux issues, and I think they are all worked out now, but in all honestly the push to get Book III done has taken over all of o...

Re: Error DELDIR

For me at least this happens only with quick save slot, normal saves do not exhibit this, the game is rather challenging (great!) so I do save quite often. So only the Quicksaves... OK, let's try something... Look in your "Eschalon Book 1 Saved Games" folder - do you see a folder called "Slot1"? If...

Re: Error DELDIR

I'm sorry but this is just bullshit. I have over 500 games and this is the only one with disappearing folders, nor do I use any strange software running in the background. Whatever is the problem it is related to the game's code and nothing else. I am sorry you feel this way. It might have to do wi...

Re: Critique of Eschalon - Learning Cliffs, and real strateg

Elveronion, while I agree that Wraith_Magus went a bit overboard with that sentence, you shouldn't say things like that. The swearing was also unnecessary. That means that the game has to involve complex decisions, because games that are turn-based cannot be based upon player finesse or skill for i...

Re: Critique of Eschalon - Learning Cliffs, and real strateg

Besides that, what I'm saying is not that there's no reason to put a skill point into skullduggery, but that if you can get that skill point for free from a trainer, rather than having to spend one of the few level up skill points you have on it, don't you ultimately just wind up with more skill po...

Re: Critique of Eschalon - Learning Cliffs, and real strateg

Again, you have enforced min-maxing , Except he's not Like I said before I'm playing the game without min-maxing. Nothing is forcing me to. Quite the contrary, I feel the game forces me not to min-max as it because too easy if you do. Plus, let's not turn it into trolling, whether you like it or no...

Re: Critique of Eschalon - Learning Cliffs, and real strateg

It is important for someone working in the print industry or manufacturing the flags to specify that the shade of blue in the Scottish saltire is Pantone Shade 300, but for the rest of us, it suffices to say "It's dark blue". You're asking us to quote you the exact reference number when we're happy...

Error DELDIR

Quite often (once in ~30 tries) I get this error when I try to make a quicksave. Basically slot1 folder disappears and I have to recreate it manually. I'm running a steam version.
